Dakini Mountain

“Are you going to Ladakh with us?”     That’s how this whole trip started. A timely text message from yogi Tashi on an afternoon tea break, where I was able to immediately turn around to my boss and demand politely state “I have two questions for you. Why are you going to Ladakh and why didn’t…

My Dark Night of the Soul

Amidst the crowd of over 30,000 people crammed on the floor like sardines- a cup of Chai in one hand and grass reeds in the other, we were given a specific task; “Remember your dreams…

Walking in the Shadows

“Soul work is not a high road. It is a deep fall into an unforgiving darkness that won’t let you go until you find the song that sings you home”  McCall Erickson In what seems like an ever-increasing time of confusion and political turmoil we, as a society have come to a crossroads. Do we…
